THINGS FOR WHICH I AM THANKFUL

  • that my addictions do not include reality television or computer games
  • that my children are healthy, intelligent and well-behaved in public
  • that my paycheck was really big this month relieving the usual Xmas-and-end-of-year-bills worries
  • that our house is so nice and so warm
  • that I'll have friends and family to eat turkey and stuffing with this weekend
  • that my husband is coming home tomorrow and wasn't in the area of the earthquake that hit northern Italy last night
  • that when I cleaned out my closet last weekend I didn't end up documenting the shame on the internet
  • that Sophie wasn't crushed by a car yesterday
  • that things, when they're bad, are rarely as bad as they seem
  • that despite being far, far away from my first family, there are email and telephones to keep us closely connected
  • that my soon to be sister-in-law is not asking me to sing The Battle Hymn of Love at their wedding next year
  • the online friendships I've made in the last year
  • the amount of times each day that my children make me laugh
  • Reese's Peanut Butter Cups
  • strong fingernails and straight teeth
  • GB Gingerbread Ice Cream Sandwiches
  • a really good, productive, happy and fulfilled life, so far, despite the poodle hair
Happy Thanksgiving From Me To You!
